In 1998, the Carbondale VFW Post built a memorial in the Plaza commemorating local veterans from the 20th Century wars. In 2003, the Post undertook building a highlighted wall identifying the Veterans Memorial Plaza. Behind the wall is a concrete platform with five plaques describing the wars of the 20th century (WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and Iraq). A sixth plaque is for all wars and recognizes those who made major contributions to building this memorial.
